The first film from WerleyBob Pictures. It's going to be great.
When completed "T.P." will be a sixteen minute long animated film created by WerleyBob Pictures, which so far consists of two people. Bob Blevins, and Bradly Werley. The story was written by Bob and the characters were designed by Bradly, and they each contribute to the project equally. We really believe in our story, which follows a fresh toilet paper roll on his journey through life. While the film is intended to be silly and fun, we also expect that it will take audiences to areas of the emotional spectrum they won't expect to go.
We are creating this film in the traditional medium of stop motion puppet animation using miniature sets, props, and characters composed of clay, foam, liquid latex, cloth, and other materials. We completed pre-production some time ago and have moved forward with production as best we could, but we have reached a point where our lack of funding is preventing us from progressing as quickly as the project deserves. We need additional funds to purchase expensive materials and equipment, to obtain the rights to use two copy written pieces of music, as well as to promote the film and enter it in as many film festivals as we can afford once it's finished. So anything you can donate would be appreciated, and we guarantee that our finished film will provide at least five bucks worth of laughter. And that's the kind of laughter where you laugh with us, and not at us. Guaranteed.
